So it turns out I was able to twiddle my DNS in such a way that my email was mostly but not completely down. I was getting just enough email so I didn't notice. If you've been getting bounce messages I apologize and you should try resending.
Also, it wasn't clear but I don't think you need an "account" on this blog in order to post a comment. I removed the superfluous "login" link since that only applied to me. Hopefully this is a little clearer to everyone
